Russia-born illustrator and street goth fashionista Mago Dovjenko flew to New York with film production crew BWGTBLD to have a bespoke piece of his work thrown up on a Williamsburg wall. Watch as the self-taught artist waxes lyrical on his first ever trip to the Big Apple, which demanded working through freezing cold temperatures before his larger-than-life mural was thrown up with the assistance of a local crew of street artists.

For more work from Dovjenko and his distinctive graphics, take a look at his part in Converse’s Made by You campaign, as well as his work on NAVIIV’s latest collection of headwear.

Music: Frizzo – Virgo, Pt. 2
